PVBLUnO WEEKLY. TUPELO. I l | MISSISSIPPL This time a Dutch baby has cap tured Holland. Some people move May 1 and others pay realty taxes. Americans must be protected wher ever they travel and wherever they live. A New York policeman found a $160 pearl In an oyster sandwich. Grafting again! The average city in Mexico has 168 holidays each year. What a pleasant country it must be. , It is disheartening to learn that Mount Etna is making a smoke nui sance of itself again. Britain is frightened lest American slang should corrupt the mother tongue. It surely is a bloomin’ shyme. Those Wright brothers certainly have even royalty acknowledging that they are "it” and can deliver the goods. “The horse is stupid, nervous, errat ic,” says a Nashville paper. Well, perhaps these hats and things he sees in the street have got on his nerves. Nearly ten feet of snow fell in Den ver during the winter that has Just ended. Denver people will, of course, claim that nothing is so delightful as plenty of snow. It is said that women are already tiring of the monstrous styles of spring hats now the vogue. Even women must sometimes bend before the force of public opinion. Aerial navigation may become a fad In time, but until man is able to guide his craft with more certainty of a suc cessful landing, terra firma will ap peal to most persons. If the governments of the earth could spare a little money to kill off mosquitoes and other disease-breeding insects a Dreadnought or two less would not be noticed. The man who takes off his winter flannels before the middle of May doesn't help the doctors much. The undertaker gets him before they have even had a chance to look him over. Now if airships were in general op eration as they expect to be in a year or so, these winds would be driv ing the mfrom their routes, and the aerial news would be of much inter est. Automobile drivers, it appears, are afraid of trolleys. It is interesting and encouraging to know that they are afraid of anything. Perhaps in time they will be afraid of the law suffi ciently to obey it. President Gomez advocates liberaliz ing the laws of Venezuela and encour aging the free entry of foreigners, par ticularly those who will be likely to aid in the development of that section. Perhaps this will give Castro a chance. He may become naturalized abroad and then get into Venezuela as a for eigner. Nevada may come into renewed prominence as a producer of precious metals. During March two mining camps in that state turned out $2,000, AAA wnrth rtf crnlH unH nuito c* rnoh nf prospectors is started for that locality. The fresh discoveries of gold may also have the effect of further weaning away the Nevadans from their exces sive devotion to silver. The most peculiar phase of the pres ent hat situation is that the majority of women who wear the unsightly things cordially detest them, but plead that there are no others for sale, and that to wear last year’s hat is to be almost as freakish as to wear this year’s. Right here is a chance for women to demonstrate their ability to take a part in the government—let them regulate the styles instead of being regulated by them. The best that can be said about the American passion for ancestors is that it provides a living for a number of professional genealogists, and that it is, in itself, comparatively harmless. Every one is perhaps entitled to some little form of vanity and self-indul gence. Ancestors cost no more than poker, and the search for them unites families in a common interest where such vanities as drinking and gam bling tend to separate them. Examination of the premises occu pied by a Los Angeles private bank, lately closed for lack of funds, showed that the supposed vault was a big door without any opening behind it. The door was of steel, with plate glass knobs, shiny combination dials and all the features of an imposing safe protecting quantities of money. Just how such a sham affair could be put in without becoming a matter of com ment is hard to see. Or do workmen set such doors often enough not to be surprised by them? There is still some question, how ever, as to whether the present mili tary activity in Nicaragua will have any appreciable effect on the kind of permanent peace we have always had in Central America. It seems that in baking beans Bos ton turns 16,000,000 quarts into 32,000, 000 quarts, and the finished product is still admirably filling. The genius that can make two quarts of beans materialize where there was but one quart has mastered a great point in dietary science and political economy. An actress was arrested and put in jail for an hour at Cincinnati a few evenings ago for stabbing two men with her hatpin. A curious thing about the case is that her press agent isn’t making much of it Cleveland reports a man who wakes his wife up in the middle of the night to tell her how his first wife committed suicide. It will be but a short while until he will, be able to tell his third wife the same story about his second wife. He is sure to drive the poor woman to it by such tactics. PREVENT NIGHT RIDINE SENATOR BRADLEY SAYS FREI TOBACCO IS REMEDY. Oppression of Growers by Tobacci Trust Has Caused All the Trouble. Washington.—That the outrages a the. night riders in Kentucky and Ten nessee resulted from the oppression o the American Tobacco Company and tha unless the internal revenue tax on lea tobacco in the hand is repealed, thesi outrages will again occur, was the dec laration made by Senator Bradley o Kentucky in urging the adoption of hii amendment to the senate bill. This amendment proposes to restori in the tariff bill the house provision foi the free sale of leaf tobacco by the farm er, which was stricken out by the financi committee of the senate. After reviewing the growth of th( American Tobacco Company, Mr. Brad ley said that, not content with destroy ing all competition in the United States this concern drove the Imperial Tobac co Company of Great Britain, its chid competitor, to a compromise and ob tained an agreement by which the Im perial yielded up all competition in the United States. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY MADE United States Has Been System atically Robbed. New York.—A handsome big French steamer trunk, brought into port by a _ Ul ..

The smuggled goods were regarded a0 a big haul for the keen-eyed inspectors. But the discovery ot a red leather label on the trunk, reading “Aux Etats Unis” (for the United States), really meant much more. The customs representa tives on the other side of the water have already begun looking for the manu facturer of the false bottomed boxes. TEXAS MOB LYNCHES NEGRO Beat Jailer Insensible, Shoot Black in His Cell. Abilene, Tex.—After an hour’s des perate attempt to break down the doors, windows and even walls of the county jail, a mob armed with shotguns and revolvers, fired into the cell of Tom Barnett, shooting him to death. Bar nett was convicted a short time ago of murdering Alex Sears, who was a prom inent and rich cattleman of West Texas. The mob formed at 1 o’clock and marched te the jail, where the immediate surrender of Barnett was demanded. The guards flatly refused to let any one en ter the cell and refused to turn over Bar nett. Then followed the attempt to break into Barnett’s eell. The author ities were caught unawares because of the hour when the attack was made, and by the time sufficient forces gathered to cope with the mob, Barnett had been shot to death. GEN. TAYLOR’S MEN EXHUMED Bodies of 157 Soldiers Removed to Fort Brown. Brownsville, Tex.—The bodies of 157 of Gen. Zachary Taylor’s soldiers arrived here Friday for burial in the National Cemetery at Fort Brown. These bodies were unearthed from the old earthworks built at Isabell by Gen. Taylor. A few bones of these soldiers were found a few months ago where the rain9 had wasnea me carui away. uuutu States army buttons found with them identified them as soldiers’ remains. The government sent a representative to in vestigate, resulting in an order to re move the bodies to Fort Brown for burial. The excavation uncovered the number named. They were coffined and shipped to Brownnville and will be buried in the National Cemetery at once. VICE OUTBREAK IN HAVANA. Lid Has Been Taken Off Since Amer icans Left. Havana.—There has been a marked in crease in immoral performances at the theaters of Havana, accompanied by a general spread of vice and an outbreak of gambling since the American occupa tion came to an end. In order to coun teract these vicious tendencies a meet ing was held Friday night at the resi dence of Bishop Estrada. Many promi nent citizens were present and a society for the prevention of vice was formed ____ • Standard Must Pay More. Austin, Tex.—District Judge Wilcox directed Receiver Eckhardt, of Maters Pierce Oil Company, to pay the State $200,000 in addition to a fine of $1,600, 000 already received as cost of the State in the prosecution of the corporation. Rogers Leaves Wealth to Kin. New York.—The will of the late Hen ry H. Rogers, the Stanadrd Oil million aire, was admitted to probate Friday. Practically the entire estate, valued at between $50,000,000 and $75,000,000, will ultimately be divided among the four children and their heirs. Half of the equal shares into which the residuary es tate is divided will be given to the four when they reach the age of 40 years, while the remaining half they may dis pose of only by will, continuing, however, to enjoy the income until their death. Governor Uses Veto. • Austin, Tex.—Gov. Campbell vetoed appropriations to the amount of $2,251, 481, which were contained in the gen eral appropriation bill passed at the re cent special session of the legislature, One of the items vetoed was the appro priation of $1,068,900 to pay off the State bonds that are due on July 1. This sum was to have come out of the Wa ters-Pierce Oil Company fine. The bill as approved by the governor carries an aggregate appropriation of $9,283,000 lot the ensuing two fiscal years. FOUR STATES QUAKE ILLINOIS, MICHIGAN, WISCON SIN AND IOWA TREMBLE. Big Chicago Skyscrapers Tremble Like Human Beings—The Panic Was Widespread. Chicago.—Chicago and four states were rocked by an earthquake Wednes day morning, throwing at least half of its inhabitants into a mortal terror. Every city; village and hamlet in Northern Illinois felt the shock and the panic was widespread. Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin were also in the path of the trembler. Thousands of persons were aroused from their slumbers, and in the foreign settlements of Chicago, particu larly where Italians and Sicilians con gregate, there was alarm which gave rise to wailing and prayers as the inhabi tants thought that they were about to suffer the same fate which destroyed so many thousands of their countrymen. Big skyscrapers in the down-town dis tric trembled like living beings with the ague. Many dilapidated old structures collapsed in different parts of the city, dishes were thrown off the shelves and broken, windows were cracked in many portions of the residence districts of May wood, Evanston and other suburban towns, and many residents were so frightened that they ran into the street fearing that the roofs were about to fall over their heads. WORST FLOOD IN YEARS. Trains on Three Railroad Systems Indefinitely Annulled. Meridian, Miss.—Three more inches of rainfall were today added to the record breaking downpour of Monday night and yesterday, and tonight all of the large streams south of Meridian are reported still rising. The rise, too, has passed all previous high-water marks, and the dam age will not be known until the water recedes. All trains south and west of Meridian on the Alabama and Vicksburg, Mobile and Ohio and New Orleans and North eastern roads have been indefinitely an nulled. Each road is reported to have suffered the loss of many miles of road bed and numbers of trestles. The Mobile and Ohio, Alabama Great Southern and Southern Railway are maintaining trains north of Meridian, but are slow sched ules. ^ Tonight it is reported from the local weather bureau that Enterprise and Shu buta are in the grasp of the worst flood in history. The water in the business district of Enterprise being almost to the second stories of some business build ings, and Shubuta being an island, en tirely cut off from the outside world ex cept for telephone and telegraph commu nication, which are yet intact. At En terprise stocks of goods have been moved from lower to upper floors, and it is thought the damage to them will not be so great. People are moving about the town in skill's. ENTERPRISE UNDER WATER. Train Service on Mobile and Ohio North of Quitman Abandoned. Quitman, Miss—As a result of the heavy rainfall Tuesday, the Chickasawha river is out of its banks and is still ris ing, and it is believed that it will equal the 1900 high water mark. Train service on the Mobile and Ohio north of Quitman has been abandoned. Train No. 2 is tied up at Enterprise and cannot move either way. The people at Enterprise seem to be suffering the most. There is five feet of water in the busi ness portion of the town, and all the stores and many of the residences are under water. People can navigate only by boat there. The crops in the lowlands will be a complete loss, unless replanted. Many people rushed into the swamps and drove their cattle to high land. FLOOD STAGE REACHED. Arkansas River Out of Its Banks Near Fort Smith. Van Buren, Ark.—The Arkansas river reached the flood stage here early Wed nesday morning, when it passed the 24 foot mark, and since that time has been rising rapidly Three more feet of water is expected before Thursday morn ing. As a result of this those residing in the lowlands have left their farms, taking their live stock and seeking refuge on higher ground. CYCLONE PASSES TUNICA. Blew Down Several Tenant Houses and Unroofed Others. Tunica, Miss.—A cyclone, doing con siderable damage to timber, passed about a mile and a half east of Tunica Tues day afternoon, laying everything in its path flat. Several tenant houses were blown down and others unroofed. The winds were followed by a heavy rain. It has been raining here since Monday, which is causing the planters to feel rather serious over crop conditions. BREAKS SPEED RECORD BATTLESHIP MISSISSIPPI GOEE 297 MILES IN 14 HOUBS. On the Way to Horn Island, Where Presentation of Silver Service Will Be Made. New Orleans.—Several hours ahead ol her schedule, and having broken all rec ords for speed, the big battleship Missis sippi reached the navy yards o!F hert at 7 o’clock Tuesday evening. Having left Natchez at 5 o’clock, the trip, a dis tance of 297 miles, was made in the marvelously short time of 14 hours. It was fitting that the finish of the cruise of the battleship to the state aftei which she is named should be a reeorc breaker. The cruise itself broke all ree ords—records for the size of the vessel for the hospitality of the people and foi the interest excited and the good the trip has done. So, when the big warship got undei draft and was headed down the stream. Capt. Fremont decided to “let her out a little.” Aided by the current, and headed in to a wind which helped the draft of her boilers, she soon made a speed ol 22 knots an hour, which, Commander Cluverius laughingly remarked, “makes her the fastest battleship of this or ol any other navy.” JAPANESE MAY ATTACK US Activity Expected Six Months Be fore Opening of Canal. Washington.—War college experts whe have been paying special attention to international relations have reached the cunuiusiun iiiai 11 ja|)<ui iiuikvs a uem onstration against the United States (and it is expected), her activity will begin six months before the completion of the isthmian canal. Secretary of War Dickinson and Gen. Franklin Bell, chief of staff, U. S. A.. have made special observations looking to the realization of the fortifications on the canal as mapped out by Presi dent Taft when he was secretary of war. The canal cannot be finished until January 1, 1915, but the war department knows that the manufacture of fourteen and sixteen-inch guns and construction of emplacements, establishment of fire control and placing of searchlights can not be realized for three or four years. In other words, it is necessary to be gin on the specific plans for the placing of the modern high power guns which are to “take the place of treaties.” “It is manifest that there is no hope in the obligation of treaties; the power that proposes to keep the canal open must be able to deal not only with one aggressive enemy, but with a combina tion of enemies. Otherwise, fortification would be vain. “This is the one question of the high est local and international importance with which the United tSates has to deal now, and will have to deal continuously for the next three or four years.” COTTON CROP IS RUINED. Too Late Now to Replant the Overflowed Lands. West, Miss'—A heavy downpour of rain has been falling since about 11 o'clock last night. This, in addition to the heavy rains of Monday and Monday night, which caused the Big Black river to overflow all the lowlamls, will make the river higher here than it has been for the past twelve months. Thousands of acres of land, on which cotton and corn are nowr up and some of it worked out, will be inundated. By the time the water recedes, it will be too late to re plant much of this land in cotton. Some farmers will lose almost their entire cot ton crop.

ADJUTANT-GENERAL RESIGNS. Frankfort, Ky.—It is reported here that Adjt.-Gen. P. P. Johnston has writ ten a letter of resignation to Gov. Wil son. The governor says he knows no reason why Gen. Johnston should re sign. The latter left Saturday to visit his orange plantation in Florida. The report is that he objected to alleged in sinuations regarding his handling of the state’s military fund, and so expressed himself in a scorching letter to the gov ernor, which he showed to his depart ment officials before mailing. Cotton Washed Away. Port Gibson, Miss.—A very heavy rain, wind and thunder storm visited this section Tuesday night and Wednesday, doing great damage to the growing crops, cotton being washed off the high Bides and lowlands under water. Eight and a half inches of rain fell from mid night to noon. Southern Trains Annulled. Greenville, Miss.—All through trains on the Southern Railway in and out of Greenville were annulled Wednesday., on account of the washout a. Big Sandy, SHIPP IS IN CONTEMPT SHERIFF HELD B7 FEDERAL SUPREME COURT. Fire Others in Same Boat—Grows Out of Lynching of Negro Prisoner. Washington.—For the first time in so serious a case, the supreme court of the United States will undertake to mete out punishment for the crime of con tempt of the court itself, and the im portance of the occasion will be en hanced by the number of de(pndants. The proceeding will take place in con nection with the cases of Sheriff Shipp and Deputy Sheriff Gibson, of Hamilton county, Tenn., and of four other resi dents of that county, named, respective ly, Williams, Nolan, Padgett and May. These men were declared to be guilty of an act of contempt in combining, in 1905, in a conspiracy to lynch a negro named Johnson, who had been sentenced to death by the local court on the charge of criminal assault, and in whose case the supreme court had interfered to the extent of granting an appeal, which had the effect of a supersedeas. On the night following the announcement of the court’s action, Johnson was taken out of the jail in Chattanooga by a mob and 1_i ri->i_ ___ ly UVlIVUa X ilV I V, II ao i V.J»WV»*»1VV V** the part of jail authorities, and Shipp and a number of his deputies, as -well as about twenty citizens, were proceeded against on the charge of contempt of the federal court. The sentence may be either fine or imprisonment, or both. The case is regarded as of exceptional interest because it is practically the first time that the supreme court has ever undertaken to assert its dignity or to resent acts or words reflecting upon it. BAPTIST TRI-STATE HOSPITAL Work on $400,000 Building to Begin in the Fall. Memphis, Term.—In early fall ground will be broken for the new Tri-State Baptist Hospital, which will be erected on Madison avenue, cast of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, at a cost of $400,000. Already. $175,000 has been raised for the hospital, and subscriptions are being received daily from generous donors of Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas. Members of the building committee will visit hospitals in the larger cities of the United States, and one member of the committee will leave soon for Eu rope, with the view of visiting hospitals of the most modern,design and construc tion, after which the new Tri-State Hos pital will be patterned. FREE LUMBER DEFEATED Democratic Division Gives Aldrich Some Hope. Washington.—Free lumber met its Waterloo in the senate Monday. Senator McCumbers’ amendment putting rough lumber on the free list was defeated by a vote of 50 to 25. Senator Johnston’s amendment making all building mate rials free was lost by the more decisive voite of 64 to 12. This vote on lumber was the second test of the Aldrich protective policy strength in the senate. The first test nainn nn Uio vntn mlftino a dlltv of 25 cents a ton on iron ore. The votes on the lumber and iron ore schedules were the same practically. It is this vote that will enable Senator Aldrich to see his bill through the senate—a coalition of the protection demands of the South and of the Republicans of the East and West against the Republicans of the Middle West. ' Good Roads Car Qff. New York.—The good roads scout au tomobile, under the auspices of the New York Herald and the Atlanta Journal, started Tuesday on a trip from Herald Square to Atlanta, G'a. Maj.-Gen. Leon ard Wood, U. S. A., commanding the Department of the East, and a number of prominent automobile manufacturers, witnessed the departure. R. H. Johnson will drive the car. FOUND HIS WIFE DYING. Mayfield, Kv.—While Charley Culvei sat in the Gem Theater, witnessing tho death scene in a moving picture, a friend hurried down the aisle and informed him that Mrs. Culver had just dropped dead. Culver was soon galloping towTard his home, twelve miles east of here. Upon his arrival, shortly before midnight, he found his wife still alive, though in a dying condition. Mrs. Culver was pois oned with poison oak. Hero Fund for France. Paris.—Andrew Carnegie has arranged to give $1,000,000 for the establishment of a “hero fund” in France, under prac tically the same conditions as govern similar funds in the United States, Eng land and Scotland. Whole Farms Under Water. Hollandale, Miss.—A heavy jain set in Wednesday night and continued most of today. Vv noie iarrns art? uimi-i », and much damage to cotton and corn will result. Plans for Knoxville Assembly. Hamilton, Ohio.—At the session of the general committee on missions of the United Presbyterian Church here, it de veloped that at the session of the United Presbyterian General Assembly, steps will be discussed for the union of the Presbyterian and United Presbyte rian Churches of America. The chief obstacle has been the unwillingness of United Presbyterians to abandon the ex clusive singing of psalms, and it is be lieved that a compromise will be reached on this point. Confederate Gets Appropriation. Springfield.—Senator Hearn, an ex Confederate, made a speech in the sen ate advocating the appropriation of $20, 000 for a monument at the battleground of Kennesaw mountain in commemora tion of the charge of the Fourteenth army corps, Army of the Cumberland. The bill was passed 40 to 0. Young Morgan Chosen. New York.—J. P. Morgan, Jr., was elected a director of the United States Steel Corporation, to succeed the late Henry H. Rogers. HE*PUZZLED THE BRITISHER Evidently Doorkeeper Had Never Heard, of the Lord That AitierL can Minister Served. ' Judge George F. Lawton of the. Mid dlesex probate court told me a story the other day of an American minis ter who was spending his sabbatical year traveling abroad. Arriving in London, he made every effort to get an intimate view of the two branches of parliament in session. Of course no stranger is allowed on the floor of the house of lords, but the minister not knowing this, and with the usual amount of American push, tried to make his way in. There Is a rule, however, that servants of the various louts may be admitted to speak to their ministers. Seeing the minister walking boldly in, the doorkeeper asked: “What lord do you serve?” “What lord?” repeated the aston ished American, “the lord Jehovah!” Fftr a moment the doorkeeper hesi tated and then admitted him. Turn ing to an assistant standing near, he said: “He must mean one of those poor Scotch lairds.”—Boston Record. WESTON, Ocean-to-Ocean Walker, Said recently: “When you feel down and out, feel there is no use living, just take your bad thoughts with you and walk them off.

A mission worker in New Orleans was visiting a reformatory near that city not long ago when she observed among the inmates an old acquaint ance, a negro lad long thought to be a model of integrity. "Jim!” ex claimed the mission worker. “Is It possible I find you here?” "Yassum," blithely responded the backslider. “I’s charged with stealin’ a barrel o’ sweet pertaters.” The visitor sighed. "You, Jim!” she repeated. “I am surprised!” “Yassum,” said Jim. “Bo was I or I wouldn’t be here!” Continual Doubt. “How many children have you?” said the tourist, affably. “I dunno exactly,” answered the tired-looking woman. “You don’t know?” “Not for certain.

Inexperienced Caddie (after Mr. Toozle's fifteenth miss)—Shall I make the ’ole a big bigger, sir? Women to Fight Tuberculosis. One million women, representing cities, towns, villages and isolated rural settlements in every section of the country, are to-day enlisted in a campaign against tuberculosis, accord ing to a statement issued by the Na tional Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. In legis latures, in congress at Washington, in society gatherings, in churches and clubs, through speaking and writing— in every possible way, the women of the country are persistently fighting consumption. With an organization established in every state of the country, under the direction of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, and with associated clubs in Alaska, the Hawaiian islands, Porto Rico and the canal zone, the women of the country have entered a systematic crusade to carry the mes sage of the prevention and cure of tuberculosis into every Adejican home. _ . ■ -_ A Plea for Bachelors.
